United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Barry Allman, age 22, of Hermosa, appeared before United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange on November 20, 2012, and pled guilty to two counts of Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury. The maximum penalty on each count upon conviction is 10 years in custody, a $250,000 fine, or both.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place on May 3, 2012, in Parmelee. While at a social gathering, Allman fired a 9mm handgun three times into the ground. Two of the rounds ricocheted and caused serious bodily injury to victims.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation; Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives; South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation Forensic Laboratory; and Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers. Allman was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal.
